Daring and traditional, groundbreaking and familiar, apocalyptic and sentimental, Wall-E gains strength from embracing contradictions that would destroy other films.
100
It whisks you to another world, then makes it every inch our own.
100
You leave WALL-E with a feeling of the rarest kind: that you've just enjoyed a close encounter with an enduring classic.
100
At once futuristic, funny and fantastical.
100
The first half hour of WALL-E is essentially wordless, and left me speechless. This magnificent animated feature from Pixar starts on such a high plane of aspiration, and achievement, that you wonder whether the wonder can be sustained. But yes, it can.

The Hollywood Reporter
The visual design of Wall-E is arguably Pixar's best. Stanton, who wrote the script with Jim Reardon from a story he concocted with Peter Docter, creates two fantastically imaginative, breathtakingly lit worlds.

Chicago Tribune
While I may argue with the little guy's taste in musicals, it's remarkable to see any film, in any genre, blend honest sentiment with genuine wit and a visual landscape unlike any other.

Miami Herald
This is a beautiful movie.
90
The first hour of Wall-E is a crazily inventive, deliriously engaging and almost wordless silent comedy of the sort that Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton used to make.
80
Rotates around a rusty little robotic hero who's built, as the movie is, with such emotion, brains and humor that whole universes exist in his whirring tones and binocular eyes.
75
In the moment, it's intermittently transcendent, heartrending and beautiful ... and busy, repetitious and boring.
75
With rich, detailed, cinematic animation and terrific sound effects, WALLE pulls this unlikely love story off.
